Andrea Begley- Visually Impaired Singer On The Voice UK Season 2
Last year, I really enjoyed The Voice. Why? Because, in the beginning at least, it is based on the beauty of voices, not faces. It is based on talent and nothing but talent.

I will be following Andrea’s progress with interest. She has my very best wishes for the competition.
